    Is there a way of scheduling the deletion of a submission? e.g. to auto-delete submissions over 30 days old.

    I saw an answer to this question from back in 2018, but I wondered if anything has changed since then.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, there's no direct option to auto-delete a submission over 30 days old or in a certain number of days. However, submission entries that have been in the trash for more than 30 days will automatically be deleted (as stated in the guide).

    We have an auto-delete app, in which it will delete the submission instantly (as soon as the submission is received) and permanently: https://apps.jotform.com/app/auto_delete_submissions.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance.
